As a huge fan of metal, i've always been one to criticise the extreme metal scene. However, i was looking at Relapse Records webpage when i was introduced to skiless who "administered gut-twisting deathgrind". Suitably impressed I went and bought the album, Foreshadowing Our Demise. Well it is a purchase I will not forget or say I regret. Skinless's music is brutal and full of complex riffage that takes time to appreciate. This manifests itself in songs like The Optimist which clocks in at over 5 minutes of complicated fret work that can't be heard with just one listen. I would say this to the more sceptical metal breed, be open minded, this album is worth a go, and even if you don't like it at least you can say you tried it out...
